Unfortunately even the second stage was delayed (?), but good thing is that last summer they made some archaeological diggings and uncovered some part of the former Great Synagogue, what floor was originally ~2 meters below street level, so after the demolition survived quite well. The Prime Minister said, in some coming years we must somehow mark the place of the former Great Synagogue, but it was not detailed only said that currently we can't rebuild it fully, only mark its place...
Just because of shortage of money...

The first, finished stage. Ašmenos-Dysnos-Mėsinių triangle.

Second stage. Lost after the war old 15-18 c. buildings.

here are also some more photos of destroyed parts of Vilnius that hopefully one day will be rebuild http://mylimasvilnius.wordpress.com/...i-nepasigyrus/

Lost quarter (Sirvydo skveras) near Didžioji, Jono, Švarco streets. Second stage.

The third and the most important stage.

The pictures look quite sad, comparissing them with the ones of now....but they did great work with the reconstructed houses of the Jewish Quarter

Buckfast Abbey, in Devon, UK. I cant find any images of what it looked like in the past but the present building is a reconstruction of an Abbey that was destroyed during the Dissolution of the Monasteries in 1147. Monks then came to the site in 1882 and rebuilt the abbey on what was left of the ancient foundations. Its quite impressive when you consider they came with nothing and rebuilt it using primitive building methods

Anyone know why Zgorzelec suffered such extensive damage when right across that narrow river Goerlitz emerged from the war completely unscathed?

Seems a bit odd.

Zgorzelec didn't suffer any damage during the war. This buildings were destroyed by commies during the 1950's.

The river area on the now Polish side, which was destroyed to better protect the new border, was actually quite picturesque:






This is a picture from the first years after the war, taken from the German side. As you can see, the houses are already uninhabited:

Very impressive indeed. I guess Poland is today the country that more reconstruct old buildings and urban landscapes. Congratulations!

Indeed it was.

I rather feared that the answer to my original question involved pure and unadulterated postwar vandalism.

What was lost there will never, and can never, be recreated for a thousand reasons, the most prominent of which involve politics, money and 21st century building codes.

Very sad.

I wouldn't be so sure. This area was abandoned for the last 60 years. It's a wasteland directly opposite the old town. With the previously mentioned reconstruction project the Poles try to connect their part with the heart of the old town again. But this can only be the first step. It's still a very empty, and not very beautiful, area. I hope some day someone notices that the river bank directly opposite the old town is probably the most valuable land of the entire town, and that a rebuilding could be a good investment. I don't think we can hope for a reconstruction, but if we are lucky we can hope for something tasteful (no Glogow-style reconstruction, but a good reinterpretation of the past).

^

I have no doubt that something will get built on that prime riverfront land and with any luck it'll be attractive

But like I said, for more reasons than there are grains of sand in the Sahara, it's utterly impossible to recreate what was there.
